One week to go until South West’s Model Show

Just one week to go until the South West Model Show at The Tank Museum, 10-11 February, with tonnes of fun for the whole family at Dorset’s top visitor attraction.

The model show is set against the world’s largest collection of military vehicles and features all shapes and sizes of models by top modellers from all over the country.

Visitors can have a go at Scalextric racing, fly a model aeroplane with the British Model Flying Association, and meet Dr Who Villains, the Daleks from the Dalek Charity Squad.

Tom Holmes, Events Manager, says: “The model show brings the whole family together to take part in a fun and hands-on weekend that celebrates model making at the home of the Tank. We are looking forward to seeing displays from our first modelling competition, and we thank Airfix and the Art’s University of Bournemouth for their sponsorship.”

Arts University Bournemouth will be holding a tree making workshop, and visitors can challenge the family with the new gel master gun game, build a model with Models for Heroes, and construct a Cobi brick tank to test it on WWI terrain.

Ten interactive exhibitions can be explored, including the bright and bold, “Tanks for the Memories” exhibition, which showcases how tanks have been portrayed as cultural icons, through model making, media, and film.

The Vehicle conservation Centre will also be open for visitors to view the rare and quirky armoured vehicles that are not usually on public display.

The Model Show is free for Annual Pass holders. Find out more information:
